Journey to the Crown: A Celebration of Beauty Airing Exclusively on ETC
Learning to catwalk in 5-inch heels, following a strict diet and fitness regimen, daily dance training sessions and mastering the art of every subtle movement onstage --these are what we think aspiring beauty queens go for a chance at donning that coveted crown.
etc’s latest show Journey to the Crown: A Celebration of Beauty, aims to give fans a rare glimpse into what really happens in the world of beauty pageants. Hosted by 2010 Miss Universe 4th Runner-up Venus Raj and 2011 Miss Universe 3rd Runner-up Shamcey Supsup-Lee, this show takes viewers through the highs and lows of being a beauty queen.
“The fans will be amazed that the journey [to Miss Universe] also entails drama, excitement, pride, struggles and even controversy,” says Shamcey.
Viewers and fans will also learn about Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina and reigning Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach in the upcoming episodes as they share their own stories in preparing for their respective pageants.
In addition to that, the show also looks back at some of the finest Binibining Pilipinas and Miss Universe candidates in the country.
“In this part of the world, our passion for beauty pageants is unparalleled. This [Journey to the Crown] also gives the fans a closer look at our country's past representatives such as Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz and Miss Universe 1999 1st runner-up Miriam Quiambao—from their pageant days to their present day lives,” Venus says.
Young women who also dream of becoming beauty queens can take inspiration from the show, and fans will be able to better appreciate the passion and determination of the women who work hard in order to bring pride to the country.
